Staining your concrete patio to look like tile.

kitchen stuff 3 days ago
I was so pleased with the DIY project on our back patio! I stained the concrete to look like tile. We used painter's tape to create the look of grout lines, and we used a concrete stain from Lowe's to stain the concrete. For a step by step tutorial, just click on the link below.

      John I absolutely love the color you used! I have a huge back yard that has the potential to be beautiful. Love the idea of auto paint too! My yard is just a blank canvas currently. Thank you for the picture

    Brilliant! I also have been wanting to tile the patio, but oh - the expense. You not only gave me a wonderful way to improve our patio, but saved us hundreds!!! Thank you so much!

    Is there a lot of maintenance? What about water stains? Does it wear well in the sun?

      Krys_George Has anyone responded to your question? This (slippery when wet) is the only thing that would keep me from doing this to our patio.

    Thank you for your easy instructions! I have a large concrete slab in the backyard where an old detached kitchen/storage building once stood. It's ugly! In a few weeks, it will be my awesome new patio!
